Shawcross eyeing return against West Brom

Centre-back Shawcross has not played since suffering a back injury in the 3-1 win over QPR on January 31, but has returned to light training and is set to join up with the rest of the squad in the next few days.

"I'm training again now and all being well I will step it up a bit over the next couple of days. I would love to be available on Saturday," Shawcross told Stoke's official website.
